Only in a strong European Union will Europe and European industry meet the challenges of the future. From the point of view of the VDMA, it is important that the member states once again made a clear commitment to cooperation at the summit in Sibiu before the European elections.
As an export-oriented industry, the mechanical and plant engineering sector has benefited more than almost any other from the economic and political unification of Europe. Cooperation across European borders is a daily reality in mechanical engineering. That is why the European mechanical engineering industry and its three million employees build on a strong European Union. A single and strong EU is Europe's only chance to assert itself in a globalised world!
Just in time for the start of the European election campaign, the VDMA is launching its initiative "Go Vote - Engineering industry votes for Europe". With this initiative, the Association calls on its members and their staff to take part in the European elections on 26 May 2019.
